Welcome Guest,
Pardon our ads; they're necessary to keep this site running. Thank you for your understanding! Many sites boast a wonderful memberbase, but here at Yavania we pride ourselves on our community. We work hard to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making sure every member and guest is greeted and included in the fun, both OC and IC. Our staff is active, friendly, and almost always available. We are a sandbox roleplay, but we have many sitewide events to spice things up! We have very few limitations when it comes to character creation, and New Members get a huge bonus! We offer a vast spectrum of free-to-play creatures, including but not limited to wolves, lions, hyenas, panda bears, wild dogs, clouded leopards, ball pythons, and eagles! Check out our Overview Guide and Character Creation to see what other species you can play! If the magic system seems overwhelming, don't worry. You do not have to build a character with magic. If you want to, however, we're available to help! Just drop into cbox. ♥

Name: Missy Papa
Gender: Female
Height/Weight: 40in/180lbs
Body Type: Bulky
Species: Spotted hyena
Appearance: A cloak of midnight hues settled upon this girl. The darkness, caused by melanism, that drapes over her stocky and clunky body reflects that which is her soul. Or whatever is left of it. Her body is tall and heavyset. Weighing in on the bulkier side of her species. Once swaying with grace, she now stumbles and slurs with her body. The only thing that pops from her dark coloration are her dark blue eyes. She wears a necklace laced with canine teeth. Her most prized possession.
Personality: Missy had once been a polite girl. Prim and proper, just how mother raised her. However, because she loves her brother oh so dearly, she let William perform his many experiments on her. What exactly he did to scramble her brain, she won't say, but he messed her up real good. When she used to possess high intelligence she is now a dim light bulb. A dull crayon, really. There is the rare occasion when she becomes sentimental and lovey dovey, but just 'give her a shake' and she's back to her dimwitted self. That doesn't mean she isn't creative or sly. Just like darling Willy, Missy can be quite manipulative. Especially when she knows it will give her what she desires. Due to the damage to her brain she may appear like an airhead who spaces off frequently, but that isn't always the case. Missy can be smart within her own right. For example, she's smart enough to know how to perfectly extract other creatures' teeth. Oh, yes, how she loves teeth. Perhaps it simply started out as a strange obsession with William's long canines. How pretty and big they are! Sometimes Missy won't look others in the eyes, instead just staring at their mouths, wondering if their teeth feel as smooth as they look. Like a midnight doll sitting up in the attic, cracked and covered in cobwebs, how unsettling the feelings are when around her. With her brother, Missy would do pretty much whatever he tells her to. So long as she is the only special someone in his life. Hell, whoever gets too close to her William is already on her death wish.
Magic: Healing, shadow, psychic(necklace)

CONCEPT #1


Name: Bha'ti
Gender: Male
Species: Lion (in his culture, they are considered 'Yautja')
Height: 230lbs
Weight: 44in
Age: 2
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Appearance: A goliath of a man. Standing at 44 inches and pulling a weight of 230 pounds, it would be wise to avoid this beast. His body is a typical tawny color, usual for lions. His mane and tail tip are affected by melanism, turning the fur to a chocolate/caramel color. Light brown and bronze scales litter his face and body at almost random intervals, and yet they are purposeful. Light colored quills are scattered throughout his mane in small clumps. Barely peeking through the dark fur. The scales and quills are things all yautja have for added protection. The scales help aid in protection from the sun while the quills help to protect his neck in case of surprise attacks. Once he became an adult, two blue-gray feathers were woven into his mane with brightly colored beads. It showed he was of age to be considered a 'young blood'. Long fangs break past his lips, giving him the look of almost having mandibles. In his culture it is normal to show off one's strength in combat and it hunting large game. During his chiva, his trial (or also referred to as hunting a worthy prey), he received an almost fatal puncture wound in the right side of his cheek. Now there is a gaping hole there showing off some of his teeth and gums. The wound has long since healed, but it is a gnarly sight to behold. Especially when he's in the scaring/joking mood and willingly sticks his tongue through the gap. During his many many spars, he sustained a large burn across the left side of his face, almost taking it over completely. After successfully completing his chiva, he gained the mark of 'blooded' upon his forehead. It closely resembles the game he hunted, something his kind call kiande amedha, or serpent. His eyes are a pale yellow, the burns he suffered turning the lids of his eyes a light flesh color. The yautja are a strange looking bunch, but they are battle ready at almost any given moment.
Personality:
Feats: agile(?), durable, diligent, investigator, stealthy, tracker
Other: giant trait, quills, longer canines, scales
Language: Yautja communicate in a series of click, trills, grunts, and roars; however, due to the influx of bringing non-yautja into the clan to spread stronger bloodlines, they have had to better vocalize their speech in actual words and have learned english to better accommodate their non-native brethren. They have a written language that is comprised of dashes. They don't teach this knowledge to outsiders, so the chance of someone else knowing their written code is very slim
Common vocabulary:

Action | "Speech." | Power.

CONCEPT #2



Name: Bha'ti
Gender: Male
Height/Weight: 42in/230lbs
Body Type: Bulky
Species: Lion (in his culture, native born are called 'yautja')
Appearance: A goliath of a man. Standing at 44 inches and pulling a weight of 230 pounds, it would be wise to avoid this beast. His body is affected entirely by melanism. Creamy chocolate is the base color, while darker versions of the chocolate dance around his mane. Passed along from his mother are a few russet-brown colors that show predominantly in his mane along the tips of the fur. Bha'ti's eyes are a dark wine red. Under his left eye is the mark of the 'blooded'. Where an elder yautja carved the design into his fur and flesh. The image closely resembles what they call kiande amedha (the closest english translation to that is 'hard flesh'). While he was still living in the clan, his younger kin wove blue and yellow feathers into his mane. He's kept them ever since as a sign of affection. Wrapping around his ears are gray horns than then curve up. As a 'mask' of sorts, is his father's bleached skull held up by a thick leather cord. The cord is sometimes hard to spot within his mass of hair. Threaded from one end of the skull to the other, the 'mask' is not intended to ever come undone, you merely slip it on and off. But Bha'ti hardly ever takes the article off. Around his lower torso is a leather satchel that he can hold his various herbs (toxic and non-toxic). His tail is a short stub, only going out a few inches from his body. Full body ref.
Personality: blunt, logical, determined, stubborn, cold, respectful, ruthless, honorable, aggressive, arrogant, possessive, highly intellegent
Magic: Fire, metal
Feats: Durable, investigator, stealthy
Other: Giant trait, large horns
Item(s): Leather satchel filled with toxic and non-toxic herbs
Language:

Ranks: 
Unblooded - unrefined hunters of the future, these are young who have yet to complete basic training
Young blood - refined hunters who are able to take down easy - medium level prey by themselves, they are still not considered "men", by older yautja
Blooded - skilled hunters who are able to take down any level prey by themselves, after their chiva they are branded with the 'blooded' mark
Elite - the most dangerously skilled yautja tasked with hunting down bad blood
Bad blood - yautja who have broken the code without submitting themselves for punishment
Elder - older/wise yautja
Ancient - very old yautja who have helped to create their society
Culture: 
Yautja are centered around a ritualistic hunting of dangerous prey. To experience defeat during a hunt is very shameful and oftens results in honorable suicide. They have a very strict honor code and if broken (accidentally, purposefully, unwillingly) it is a near irredeemable act is most situations. Only high ranked seasoned warriors and young novices are given leeway in this. If a yautja breaks the code they are expected to honorably submit and await punishment. Should the yautja forego punishment then they are stipped of their rank, labeled 'bad blood' and elite hunters are sent to kill them.
The code: 
1. Worthy game consists of those who are able to defend themselves/possibly kill the hunter, those of age (killing children and elderly is considered bad mannered), those not linked to another life (pregnant), and those not weakened by disease
2. Claiming another hunter's kill is a great offense
3. Murdering one's own is the worst crime
4. Never harm the innocent
5. Those who show us mercy are our equals
6. Those who break the code are no longer yautja
7. Never harm offspring or the diseased
8. Never kill the pregnant even if they pose as a threat
9. Hunting ethic is to reveal yourself in a dual
